In April 2000, Reuters America's newly-formed Diversity Advisory Council (DAC) held its first meeting. Its members represented a variety of underrepresented groups and worked in many different business units. Tom Glocer, the head of Reuters America's Legal Department, and later to become the CEO of Reuters, sponsored the meeting, and agreed to work with the DAC to encourage members of the Senior Leadership Team to develop annual diversity-related goals for themselves and their business units. Over the next several months, each DAC member, in conjunction with a human resources representative, assisted business unit leaders to develop diversity-related goals that were connected to their annual business goals.
